Very practical transportation within and around London. It covers all the routes you might think of. You will always find a near by station. With Oyster card, payment drops by half and it is very convenient than cash payment. Buses are clean and convenient.

We used the bus twice. We found it a bit confusing as didn't know which bus to get where. I would recommend the Underground as far easier to understand and much quicker. Clean buses, but quite hot.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

‫hello Maggie, there are guides near every major bus terminal who can answer your questions (at least there were some during the summer tourist season). You can also ask at the information desk‬
